Applications open for summer events at Hornsey Town Hall

Publication date: Monday 4 March 2013

Hornsey Town Hall will once again be open for community events this summer.

Residents, community groups and voluntary organisations are invited to apply to stage activities at the landmark building in the heart of Crouch End.

Parts of the Grade II listed Town Hall will be available for hire from 18 May to 28 June as part of a community programme coordinated by the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust and Haringey Council.

Applicants will need to show how their proposed event will help to enhance the Town Hall's reputation as a destination for arts and culture and offer community access to certain parts of the building that are usually out-of-bounds.

Community hire costs for the building for an eight-hour day will be £300 for a maximum of three rooms, including one Haringey Council officer on site.

Areas available for hire are:

  • The ground and first floor foyers
  • Rooms 137, 145 and 146
  • The Council Chamber (available for restricted use only)

The main hall is unavailable for community use for health and safety reasons.

In addition to parts of the building being available this summer, the Town Hall Square - which fronts Crouch End Broadway - can also be used for community activities all-year-round subject to availability. Community hire costs will be £100 per event.

Liz Sich, Chair of the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust, said:

"We're delighted that Haringey Council is opening up Hornsey Town Hall again for community events this summer. There's already lots planned in the Town Hall Square and we look forward to welcoming the community back into this historic building."

Cllr Joe Goldberg, Cabinet Member for Finance, said:

"We saw some excellent community and cultural activities at Hornsey Town Hall last summer, and I hope that this year's programme will be even more packed. This is a great opportunity for local groups to make the most of the Town Hall and help bring a summer buzz to Crouch End."

Full details on hire costs and criteria can be found on the Hornsey Town Hall page.

Anyone interested in applying to stage an event should email hth@haringey.gov.uk including the following information:

  • Requested date(s) of their event
  • A brief outline of the event, including how it will benefit the Town Hall and the community
  • Whether the event will be free to the public or a ticketed event
  • Which areas of the building and/or Town Hall Square the event will use
  • Full contact details for the organiser

Initial applications must be received by 5pm on Friday 29 March. Successful applicants will be contacted in the week commencing Monday 8 April.

Please note that any successful applicants will need to apply for required licences, if applicable under separate cover.

The Town Hall Square has already been booked for Crouch End Festival activities on 8-9 and 15-16 June.
